View looking north at the High Place and stela located on the north side of the Iron Age gate that leads into the city. On the left is one of the seven(!) stelae that were found in the gate area—this one is not inscribed. All of the stones in the picture are black basalt.
Slightly to the right of center note the three steps that lead up to a high place that has a basin—carved black basalt—on the top platform. Note the replica of a stela with the deity Hadad engraved on it. Click Here to view the original.
